Artwork in the Underpass – Update!

In April of 2021 Fairlee Community Arts was awarded a grant from the Vermont Arts Council to install public art and after a full year of negotiations with VTrans, owner of the underpass area, we finally have a contract to install two murals in the I-91 underpass. Morey & Main: Artwork in the Underpass

Due to shifting guidance from VTrans on what was possible our patient artist Matt Heywood had to reimagine the work several times but we now anticipate installation in the summer of 2023.

The two murals will be a combination of paint directly on the concrete surface with elements painted on a lightweight canvas called Muralcloth. The leaves and snowflakes can be “ghost-printed” on the cloth, painted off-site and then applied to the surface with an acrylic adhesive.
